Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don't think you can go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie recipe, but this particular recipe goes very very right.
yield: ~48 cookies

2C minus 2 tbs cake flour
1 ⅔C bread flour
1 ¼ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp baking powder
2 ½ sticks salted butter
1 ¼C brown sugar
1C + 2 tbs sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 ¼ lbs bittersweet chocolate chips or disks
sea salt

  1. Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Using a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy - about 5 minutes.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Stir in vanilla.
  5. Reduce speed to low, add dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
  6. Drop in chocolate pieces and carefully incorporate them.
  7. Press plastic wrap against dough and refrigerate for 24-36 hours.
  8. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°.
  9. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat. 
  10. Scoop 1½ tablespoon mounds of dough onto baking sheet.
  11. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  12. Bake until golden brown but still soft, 10-12 minutes.
  13. Transfer sheet to a wire rack for 10 minutes, then slip cookies onto a cooling rack.
  14. Enjoy!
